Ex-German international footballer, Gerald Asamoah has been appointed as the new manager of Schalke 04.
His appointment comes in the wake of the sacking of Domenico Tedesco as the head coach of the cub.
The Royal blues have suffered a poor run of results in the Bundesliga and Tuesdays humiliating 7-0 UEFA Champions League defeat in the hands of Manchester City put the icing on the cake for the former coach.
Schalke 04 confirmed Gerald Asamoah's appointment as the new manager on Saturday and he will be assisted by Huub Stevens and Mike Büskens.
Asamoah played 328 matches for the club scoring 52goals.
